Ganesh Venkatraman is doing his second Malayalam film, My Story, starring Prithviraj and Parvathy in the lead. The actor completed his first schedule of shoot in Mysore recently. He tells us, “I play a pivotal role in the film. I wouldn’t say I play an anti-hero, but my role definitely has grey shades.”
Ganesh, who denies he’s playing a cop, will be joining the second schedule of the film in January in Portugal. “The film will have the look and feel of a Hollywood project. Dudley, the cinematographer of Chennai Express, is a part of this film,” he says.
How did he bag the offer? “I didn’t know Bigg Boss Tamil was a huge hit in Kerala. The director Roshni Dinaker approached me after seeing me on the show. She thought I’d be apt for the role of David. In fact, the team waited for almost a month as I was occupied with show-related commitments,” he smiles.
Ganesh is also a part of the Arvind Swami-starrer Vanangamudi, and has signed three other Tamil films.
“The respective production houses will reveal more about the projects in the coming days,” he says.
My Story, which depicts two different stages in the lives of Prithviraj and Parvathy, has music by Shaan Rahman.
